Greetings!Rev. Jeremy D. Nickel  
Hello to my fellow Mission Peakers!  After a lovely summer sabbath time in Washington State, I am back in the bay and ready to kick-off another great year in Fremont!

I hope you will join me this Sunday as I share a few stories from my time away and some of the lessons I learned from them. 

And then I hope you will stick around and catch up, with me and any other congregation friends you haven't seen in awhile.

Also, I wanted to draw your attention to the World Interfaith Harmony Picnic being held in Fremont this Saturday (more info in a separate article below).  It is a very special event that really highlights what is so unique and amazing about this area.  I hope to see you there!

Yours in the unfolding,

Rev. Jeremy D. Nickel
Minister of Mission Peak UU Congregation
Fremont, CA.

Island Lessons    
Have you ever spent time on an island? If so then I am sure you will agree that it is a unique experience living in that type of isolation. That was my experience this summer, and this Sunday I will share three spiritual lessons I learned from my experience living for three weeks on a small Island off the coast of Washington State.
Leading the service will be Rev. Jeremy D. Nickel and Worship Associate Sharon Davis.  Music will be provided by Mark Kahn.

Share Faire
Share Faire

The Share Faire is about sharing what we have - by giving away what we don't want, someone may need or want it.  The Share Faire is one afternoon - the best time is Sunday when everyone is around or Saturday.

Seeking committee members who are willing to put this event together. It won't take much time - promoting it, inviting people to come out, set-up and tear-down.  The only cost will be signs.  Please contact me if you are interested 510-320-8332.

Thank you

Who We Are

Mission Peak Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Fremont was founded in 1993. We are a member congregation of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts.


Mission Peak members determine its policies, choose its minister, and support it financially.


We affirm and promote these UUA Principles and Purposes:

  • The inherent worth and dignity of every person
  • Justice, equity and compassion in human relations
  • Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations
  • A free and responsible search for truth and meaning
  • The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in our society at large
  • The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all
  • Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part

We invite you to join us and add your commitment to ours. Mission Peak is a living and changing congregation, responsive to the spiritual needs of its members.
